Critical Incident Stress Management

Headquarters POC

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) is a program designed to provide peer support and information on healthy life choices in response to stressful work environment incidents.

CISM is a process to lessen the overall impact of acute or cumulative stress and to accelerate recovery through peer support for people who are having normal reactions to abnormal events. It is complementary to and works hand-in-hand with the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers missions such as flood risk management operations and emergency response come with stress, sometimes great levels of stress over prolonged periods. The Great Lakes and Ohio River, Mississippi Valley, Pacific Ocean, South Pacific, and Southwestern Divisions, and the Trans-Atlantic and North Atlantic Commands have adopted CISM to help employees faced with a variety of different crisis situations.

This website provides information about CISM. A Division Program Manager is identified at the bottom of each webpage within this site. If you would like more information about the content of each webpage, please contact the Division Program Manager directly.
